Denver to Europe next summer

Icelandair will begin year-round, non-stop services from Denver (DIA) to Reykjavik in May 2012.  Via Reykjavik this will give connections to what is known as the Mile High City four times per week from Heathrow, and from Glasgow and Manchester too.  From Denver, eastbound, the Boeing 757 flights will offer one-stop services to more than 20 destinations in Europe including Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Munich and Paris.  Denver is the ninth North American city to be served by Icelandair.

Europe ranks as Denver’s largest international market, accounting for one-third of DIA’s international origination and destination travel.  Even with daily flights to London (British Airways) and Frankfurt (Lufthansa Airlines), Denver has been underserved in transatlantic access. 

“Attracting international guests to visit Colorado’s world-class ski resorts has been a long-standing priority of Colorado Ski Country USA,” said Melanie Mills, President and CEO of the company.  “The Icelandair service will really enhance the options for Colorado-bound skiers from Scandinavia, Europe and Iceland, helping to make Colorado an even more attractive winter holiday destination.  Skiers will help to balance out the seasonality in traffic from these markets.  We are proud to have worked in partnership with our business friends in Denver to attract Icelandair.” www.icelandair.net
